Most newer vehicles that employ a Keyfob armed cutoff also tie it into the door locks. Using the Key to open the door should disable the cutoff signal. While I have seen some that ony allow the drivers door keylock to disingage the cutoff it is your best way to see if the door lock will allow it to start.

How does key fob work


Depending on the specification of your vehicle, the FOB generally serves one (or both) of the following functions:

1) Communicate with the vehicle's Keyless Entry system (operates central locking).
2) When inserted into the ignition, the transponder within the key will communicate with the vehicle's Body computer (BEM) to validate entry, before disengaging the immobilizer - allowing the vehicle to start.

When the key fob fails, you may lose functionality of the above systems.

Keyless entry failure - usually due to flat battery in the fob. Reprogramming of keyless entry can be done without dealership assistance.

Transponder/Immobilizer failure - this requires the key fob to be re-programmed by your local dealership.


Hope this helps....

My immobilliser is stuck,the central locking wont work when I press the button on the fob,I have to lock/unlock doors with key and when I put the key in the ignition to try and turn engine on the little...


Suggestions


1...Make sure the fob battery is working (Try removing and replacing it again to reset everything )...or try another new battery in it

2...If that fails, try disconnecting the Main Car Battery terminal for 10 minutes, then replace it. This often resets everything as well.

Make sure you have the code for the radio before doing that
